A Word From The Author
I am writing this book to tell the story of a kid from Everett who joined the Army in the early 1960s and served in Korea, Asia and West Germany. As a young man I believed then as I do now about service above self. I hope that this story will be meaningful to the reader. I am inspired by my experiences with the Army, the U.S. Postal Service, the Franklin Institute of Boston, the University of Lowell, the Mass. Department of Public Works, Saint Michael Parish, the town of North Andover, Mass., and numerous other institutions. I’ve had my share of life’s ups and downs, but the downs have been few. So I guess you can say I’ve been lucky and will add that it’s all because of you, the people I have known. As I write this, my life’s story, between each line of pain and glory I want you to know: The town of North Andover – you are the best thing that ever happened to me!
